Having Paris Hilton drive around in their $212,800 vehicle with a brand new bright pink paint job isn’t exactly what Bentley was hoping for when promoting their high-powered Bentley Continental GT but that’s exactly what they have been given.
Designed for the “younger driver” crowd the company recently told Forbes that while they appreciate that “celebrities and influencers” buy its cars though they would prefer a different type of clientele.
Then again as the company told Forbes “there’s a certain element still buying it possibly for very different reasons: the follow-on crowd who just said, ‘Well, so-and-so is driving the car, so I want one.'”
In an attempt to draw a more refined crowd Bentley has recently featured former Vogue Paris editor Carine Roitfeld, art collector Peter Brant and polo player Nacho Figuera.
While they can’t take the car away from Paris they could go the route of Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino of “Jersey Shore” when Abercrombie and Fitch offered him a million dollars to stop wearing their clothes. Then again they could just ignore Paris Hilton all together and hope that she moves on to another car soon as she’s prone to do.
I find the car to be quite ugly in hot pink, does anyone else think a hot pink version of a high-power car is a little silly?
